★★★★★

After getting introduced to this place by Ms. Valerie, Ahn Dental Specialist has been nothing but wonderful to my family and I. Not only are they understanding and caring, but they truly do everything they can to ensure that their patients are satisfied and their needs are fulfilled. The staff is amazing and they’re all so friendly. Every time I come here I know I’m in the best hands, and I always leave with a bright smile on my face. If anyone is looking for a dentistry that will achieve their teeth dreams, this is definitely the place to go! I’m so appreciative of everything they do for me, and I know it will only continue to get better!

Never seems to amaze me as I am always greeted with a smile as I walk in. Kayla and Luis really know how to make someone feel comfortable. Lucy was my hygienist and she treated me with all the care. Knowledgeable, gentle, fast, and efficient. The service that I get here has made me schedule a cleaning three times a year. There is nothing more important than taking care of your dental hygiene. Dr. Ahn and her staff are a breathe of fresh air and I’m happy to have them supporting my dental care. I absolutely recommend them for all your dental needs.

I ended up at Dr, Ahn’s office due to an emergency. I was visiting from out of town and I had a tooth ache. Dr. Ahn is so compassionate and knowledgeable. She spent a lot of time with me explaining my situation and guided me on what type of treatment to seek once I returned home. I am so grateful that she was able to see me. Her office is state of the art. Her staff is extremely friendly and comforting. I only wish that I could find someone of her caliber where I live. Thank you so much for helping me, Dr. Ahn.

Terri G. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have to say first of all I have a severe phobia of dentists. But Dr. Ahn and her staff, especially my dental hygienist, Lia, are truly amazing! They have always been so gentle and professional and patient with me! I absolutely LOVE them and I highly recommend them if you are looking for a new dentist or are tired of your current one. Also a very big shout out for Dr. Ahn’s Office for donating 800 toothbrushes to PATH, People Assisting the Homeless!! These will be delivered to PATH this Holiday Season. Very blessed to have such a giving dental group in our community!! Thank you so much Dr. Ahn!!

★★★★★

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Ahn and Dr. Ochi first before she took over the office on Aviation. Dr. Ahn is very caring and explains exactly why and what she’s going to do. She has a very gentle touch with the needle and I’m a total scaredy-cat! No pain or very little. He office is lovely and warm and the staff is nice.

John M. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Ahn and the entire staff here are the nicest in the business. Their equipment is state of the art, too! No giant robot armed X-Ray machine and oversized X-Ray film that dig into your mouth. I came here for an honest, second opinion many years ago, and that’s what I got. I have been coming here ever since. They don’t do unnecessary work here and actually care about your teeth. I’ve never been told exactly how to better brush my teeth. They take the time to show me my teeth and show where my brushing technique has been lacking and following up the next visit. Very nice, very professional and personable, very modern, and very clean. This is the best dentist in the South Bay!

K. M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr Ahn and the office staff went above and beyond to schedule my root canal and crown procedure. Dr. Ahn and her staff were patient and kind in explaining the procedures as well as working with my insurance so I would know exactly what my payment would be ahead of time. Dr. Ahn Dental Specialist has my highest recommendation

★★★★★

Best service around. If you like detail orientated dentists look no further. Dr. Ahn was highly recommended to me whom I found to be knowledgeable and very thorough. If you’ve been hunting for a good dentist just give Dr. Ahn a try. Some things can’t be bought with money.

Carol Yingst (Source: Google)

★★★★★

Dr. Ahn and her staff are amazing! I have had the pleasure of having Dr. Ahn as my dentist since since she partnered with Dr. Ochi. She is amazingly competent and caring. She’s the ultimate professional! I have recommended her, without question, to friends and co-workers. Her work is of the highest quality!

Eric A. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been a personal patient of Dr Michelle Ahn’s since 2016. What strikes me the most is the skill, expertise, and honesty she gives her patients. I appreciate their comfortable office, kind front staff and hygenists, and friendly operations manager, Jerry. It is easy to get an appointment here, and the parking is ample. I’ve had deep cleanings, crowns, and fillings done by her that was the least painful from all of my visits with other dentists. Not to mention super smooth and well fit veneers giving me a million dollar smile. Nowadays it seems like healthcare has become more focused on high volume and money only. I’m glad to say that Dr Ahn’s practice is a throwback to more traditional practices where you develop a relationship for life.

Sammy H. from Provo, UT (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Ahn is the most patient and wonderful dentist i have ever had. I had some insane white spots on my teeth from braces and every dentist would tell me they’re not fixable. Dr. Ahn looked at them and said, no problem. Let’s see what we can do. One visit later, they’re 90% better. Thanks Dr. Ahn for giving me a smile worth showing off.

Carolina Cesconetto Martins (Source: Google)

★★★★★

I came see Doctor Ahn to ask for a second opinion. It was the best choice I could have made. She was really patient and tried really hard to save my tooth. And she did it!!!! I didn’t have to do a root canal and put a very expensive crown, as the first dentist (in another clinic) had told me before. And also, the first dentist told me I had three more fillings to do, while Dr Ahn told me I should only keep an eye on them. And explained me exactly why. Also, my father is a dentist and he agrees with everything that Dr Ahn tells me and that makes me double trust her. We had a little missunderstanding with one bill, but we figure it out with a single call. I truly recomend her. She will sure do her best to save your teeth and avoid unnecessary costs. She is amazing.

Lauren A. from Diamond Bar, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr Ahn’s for a few years. The hygienists are always very helpful, caring, and informative. I wanted to leave a special recognition for my new hygienist Yuni. Yuni went above and beyond to explain what was happening with my dental health and was very thorough with my cleaning. She is incredibly personable and made the experience that much better. Thank you Yuni! Dr Ahn is always so warm and sweet. She is a bubble of sunshine and is great at explaining my problem areas and next steps. Dr Ahn runs a very strong business and all of her employees are professional and courteous. Thank you Dr Ahn!

Joe M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Ahn is our family dentist. Excellent dentist for both dental care and cosmetic dentistry (appearance is important to us, and her). Her pricing is always very reasonable, which is important to me as we’re self insured. For example, she was much more affordable for replacement retainers than our orthodontist. Moreover, she makes herself available when we have an emergency issue, such as lost retainers or a cap that came off.  She also has a great staff of dental technicians and scheduling (or rescheduling) dental cleanings has never been an issue.  Friendly staff. Can’t get any better. Five stars.

★★★★★

Dr. Ahn, has been the Best dentist I’ve ever had, I wasn’t Blessed with good teeth ,got lots roots canals, crowns, lots fillings a bridge, I’ve been through a lot. Ive had dentists tell me “they are the best” they talk and talk, I thought I had to live with their results. My friend told me about Dr.Ahn, she doesn’t talk much but when she does you wanna listen, I would say she’s more like a “tooth geek”, she redid a lot bulky patchy work. She didn’t give up till it was perfect, and she was patient. She sent me to their great Lab to meet and work with crown makers , they all made it so easy. After hearing so many implants Horror stories. Hey the staff were amazing, Miguel work long endless hours with Dr.Ahn to make me happy. Front Desk are great too, we worked out a payment plan that fit us both. I had my teeth clean today with Yuni and again it was a super deep gentle cleaning job. I wish I had found this office years ago so much money and teeth could’ve been saved. If your teeth are important to you! This is the place for you for sure… Thank you ThankU to everyone at Dr. Ahn office..

★★★★★

This office is by far the best I have been in the staff is so nice and helpful… They kept me well informed on what was going to happen and always asking if I was ok, and let me tell you I really don’t like to go to the dentist but these guys are the exception!!! Luis the assistant that took my X-ray made it so easy and painless first time ever. And I can’t say enough about the Hygienist Leah, she was the best so nice, gently and caring the most pleasant cleaning I have had. Dr Ahn is extremely nice and gently as well, my all around experience in this office was awesome and I will be recommending all my friends and family here.

Alyssandra B. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

From the minute I booked my appointment with Dr. Ahn’s office, I immediately felt comfortable. The receptionist was extremely kind and friendly and made just booking the appointment a great experience in itself. After meeting with Dr. Ahn and talking to her about my wants and needs for my smile, I feel extremely confident and excited to see the results. She’s immensely knowledgeable and kind, making the sometimes intimidating experience of going to the dentist an enjoyable one! I couldn’t recommend this office more, if you live in the Southbay and are looking for a great dentist, this is the place for you!!

★★★★★

Cannot say enough to show my appreciation for Dr. Michelle Ahn and her team. Had a dental emergency while visiting LA and got a quick referral to Ochi Dental Assoc. They were very accommodating of my last minute need for care and happened to be assigned to Dr. Ahn. She was able to repair my tooth quickly and sent me along to enjoy the rest of what would have been a painful remainder of my vacation! Further, Dr. Ahn gave me some great advice on general care which she and her team followed-up on even though I am out-of-state! Very happy with the full service 360 degree care that I received and would highly recommend going to her for all dental needs. Thanks Dr. Ahn and the entire Ochi team!

Been going to Ahn Dental Specialists before it was Ahn Dental Specialists.  The transition from Dr. Ochi to Dr. Ahn has been seamless, and both she and my long-term hygienist Lynne take excellent care of me.  I expect nothing less and am pleased that my teeth should stand the test of time.  Thanks to Dr. Ahn, Lynne and staff!  You’re all aces…!!

Mauro T. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

My experience at Dr. Ahn’s has always been a pleasure and they all remember my name! Uni, my hygienist, was very nice, fast and efficient. This last visit was my first with Uni. My wife and I are both patients here and my sister-in-laws’ family as well. They are always on time and I rarely have to wait. They are great about communicating any issues or changes to your appointments as well as confirming what you do have on the books via text or phone call. The front office is always very friendly and they always answer any questions you might have about your account or upcoming appointments. I’ve had cavities, one crown and several cleanings by the team at Dr. Ahn and they have always been personable and friendly. I always look forward to my cleanings and check-ins with Dr. Ahn!

You can tell that Dr. Ahn really lives what she does which makes her great at it. She walked me through everything she was doing and had a really refreshing positive attitude toward dentistry (which is just hard to have…lol). Her entire staff was also great and very helpful. Here were no surprises when it came to the cost of the service and they did all the leg work with insurance. I had a great first visit!

Dr Ahn is a caring, pleasant, smart and gently Doctor. She is very skilled at what she does. She does not unnecessarily push procedures on you. In fact she discouraged ppl from investing in wrong procedures. She just did my cavity work and it was painless. She took her time and made me feel comfortable. She is super amazing and super cool. I am definitely going to get her to do my Vaneers. Love you Dr Ahn ! And thank you for your help.

★★★★★

From the moment I arrived I was treated with kindness and professional courtesy. The front office team were friendly and helpful. Once I was in the dental chair I seen very quickly by the first person who took X-rays. Once that was completed I was seen by Dr. Ahn. She looked everything over, discussed the options with me, answered my questions and we came up with the plan to go forward. I highly recommend Dr. Ahn and her team to anyone who needs to see a dentist!!

Lori C. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Ahn and her staff are the nicest and most engaging staff I’ve ever experienced in a dental office. They are always super helpful and welcoming the moment you walk in. Dr. Ahn herself has the best “bedside” manner with patients and is one of the most down-to-earth and “real” dentists I’ve ever worked with! And she’s hilarious to boot! If you are in the South Bay and looking for someone for your pearly whites, please do yourself a favor and book an appointment like yesterday with Dr. Ahn! You won’t be sorry! Thank you to Dr. Ahn and your staff for always taking such great care of my grill!

★★★★★

I knew I had to get a new filling since food kept getting stuck at the same spot and I kind of knew my filling fell off. Like most people I dreaded going to the dentist because who likes to suffer and be in pain voluntarily. First visit was with a hygienist for a cleaning. They used a numbing gel on my gums which helped with the pain. The hygienist was super friendly and nice. She kept asking me if I was okay and if I needed a break and she can stop anytime. After my cleaning Dr ahn came in and confirmed that i did need a new filling. Maybe even a crown depending on how deep my cavity had spread since I waited so long to get it filled. I went back the next week to get my cavity filled. She was honest to let me know filling was all I needed. she was way more delicate and had gentle hands than my old dentist and they numbed me up way more than my other dental offices I been to so I didn’t feel any pain during the procedure. I’m glad I finally got this cavity filled and found a new dental office to keep returning for maintenance and cleaning.

My entire family sees Dr. Ahn and her team. We’ve been extremely happy with their services. Aside from walking out with sparkly pearly whites they are on time and great with communication. They will communicate and confirm/reschedule by text if that’s your preference. Appointments always seem to run on time. My daughter started seeing Dr. Ahn at 2 years old and I was so impressed with how they handled the pediatric side of dentistry

So my 1st visit here with my son. He was seen by Dr Ahn and he actually sat still! Dr Ahn was so patient with him and funny. She made him laugh keep in mind my son is 4years old they let me stay at n the room while they did his exam and cleaning. I would recommend this place for any families with small children! Now I’ll bring my little girl – she’s almost 2

I have been seeing Dr. Ahn for well over 1-2 years now. I was previously a patient of Dr. Ochi. Dr. Ahn is extremely knowledgeable and effective. She is an excellent dentist. I attend regular cleaning appointments every 6 months. She put a crown on a cracked tooth over a year ago, and I have had no pain or problems since. I attended my 6 month visit today and all of the staff starting from the front desk, to hygienist and X-ray tech were extremely efficient, kind and pleasant. I left the appointment smiling. Dr. Ahn takes my Delta Dental PPO insurance. I am so grateful that I didn’t have to search for another dentist after Dr. Ochi retired. I value good, quality dental care and would recommend Dr. Ahn to anyone.

The staff is friendly and competent. They are also very professional but relaxed. I had my teeth cleaned and had to return a few days later for a filling.  I was experiencing the usual unhappiness associated with getting a shot of Novocain. My cavity wasn’t too large so I didn’t need the Novocain injection.  I was out of the office in under 30 minutes.  I’m happy with the experience and recommend Dr Ahn.

Dr. Ahn and her specialists have always taken great care when it comes to all my dental needs. I’ve had two root canals in the office and due to the fact I fear the dental chair like no there I choose general anesthesia in order to sleep, wake up and feel like all I did was just walk in and out. If you fear the Dentist as much as I do this is the place for you. Just to specify, I only choose sleep dentistry specifically for root canals. Dr.Ahn is able to prescribe other sedatives for nervous patients in order to perform other regular procedures.

I cannot find enough words to explain how great Dr. Ahn (the prosthodontists specialist) is, at everything she does! I had a horrifying accident where I broke my two front teeth. One of my two front teeth was not savable and needed to be pulled. As you can imagine, this experience has been incredibly traumatic for me. Dr. Ahn has been patient, gentle, dedicated and incredibly meticulous about every detail. I have had dental issues my entire life, and can honestly say she is the most gentle with those darn Novocain shots! The thing that impresses me the most, is how understanding she has been of my concerns and my desires. Dr. Ahn sat with me on a Friday evening, until long past the office was closed, simply to get my temporary crowns perfect. Yes, I said temporaries! Lastly, Ochi Dental Associates has state of the art technology. I am nothing short of impressed. I am so impressed, I drive from Brentwood all the way to Redondo Beach, just for Dr. Ahn. If I ever have to leave Los Angeles, my next dentist will be hard pressed to compare to the quality of care and service I have received. I honestly have never been to a dentist that is as finicky as I am about my results. She treats her work as if it is being done in her own mouth. Please see the pic below showing the TEMPORARIES!! My specific treatment will take over a year to complete, which is the only reason I do not have a picture to show of my permanent implants, crowns, etc. However, seeing the temporaries shows me my final results will be nothing short of amazing.

No matter how far north I move, I always keep coming back to Ahn Dental. They just spoil me so much and I love it! Like most people, I wasn’t a huge fan of visiting the dentist. However, when I started coming to Ahn, it felt much more like a spa experience, making me look forward to my visits. They are so friendly and I never have to wait. They take their time and I never feel rushed. The staff is fantastic and you can tell they truly care. Best experience: I had a cavity and set up an appointment for a filling. They were very flexible with the schedule, knowing mine was extremely tight. Only here did I get to choose my pandora playlist, and get to listen on super soft / noise cancelling headphones, while they drilled away. I didn’t feel a thing as I was calmly soothed by some relaxing tunes. After it was all over, they gave me a hot towel for my face and a little chapstick for my lips. I’m telling you! Spa! Lol because when I walked in, I was stressed and tired from work. So, to walk out feeling refreshed and calm (after a filling, of all things), is worth every penny. Hands down, the BEST!
